A few of my peers and I have started doing watercolor landscapes regularly. I thought I would start a thread here specifically to showcase watercolor landscapes so we would have somewhere to post our stuff, and so we could see what the other people of CA are doing in the same area. Feel free to post you're watercolor landscapes.
Good work, but FYI - there are a number of application programs on computer, like Photoshop or publisher, that might help you with cropping of the pictures. Give it a try some time. Ask your professor, maybe he can assist u with that. (sorry, couldn't resist this one)
I'll share a couple things. and a study.
Thanks for posting Msegal and dpaint!
Msegal: I like you're first one the best
dpaint: I'm envious of your environment. It would be nice to paint in a great location like that.
Here are two more landscapes from me.
The first one is near a friend's house, and the second is in my back yard.
posted these before but anyway ...
I'd have more but I forgot all my landscapes at school =[

As if landscape wasn't hard enough with oils... well done! I always think of Wyeth when I see watercolour landscapes. I sure as hell don't have the patience to do them but I commend all of you who do!

MY SKETCHBOOK http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=143696
Some sketchbook stuff from this year - all quick sketches from life. If you can't tell, I live in a place with LOTS of trees!
Hey guys, I've been trying to post stuff for about a month now but I've been having difficulty attaching my scanned-in files. Anyway I found that it works if I attach these images as pdfs so here goes. This is a copy of one of Sargent's watercolors. I never really have high hopes when it comes to copying one of Sargent's paintings but I was pleasantly surprised by this one.
That doesn't look to bad.
You should take what you observed while doing the copy and go out into the field and do some landscapes.
Unlink 40 and I had a landscape show in a local gallery in October. I've been busy with school since, but as soon as the semester ends I'll upload some even photos.
Yeah, I feel like I learned a good bit from that watercolor and hopefully I'll get a chance to do some plein air stuff soon. In the meantime I've been thinking I might just do some still lifes in watercolor.
I'm going to attempt to post a landscape I did outdoors a few months ago on a river near my aunt's place....and whaddya know it looks like it actually works, apparently I just have to save all my jpegs in preview first.
Anyway, I'd love to see some of the stuff from your show, I'll be on the lookout
